 Technology

There are many situations in which a computational approach is the ideal one for studying a problem. For example, in studying the flow of air in the breathing tract of a human, one can hardly do experiments! And even if we could experiment, how could we *see* what is happening? By simulation, we can both perform virtual experiments of the flow of fluids, and visualize the results in a myriad ways. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is vital for many applications of science and engineering. This course is designed for graduate students or advanced undergraduates.
